There is no "iddah" for war captives / slaves. Rather there is istibra'. The waiting period for them is: One menstrual cycle, for the non-pregnant. Childbirth, for anyone who is pregnant. عن أبي سعيد الخدري، ورفعه، أنه قال في سبايا أوطاس ‏ لا توطأ حامل حتى تضع ولا غير ذات حمل حتى تحيض حيضة Abu Sa’id Al Khudri traced to Prophet (ﷺ) regarding the ...

It is revelation that was sent to him. Its contents include what is mentioned in the Quran: In Surah Al-A'la, which at least includes the preceding sentence, and could mean the entire surah: He has certainly succeeded who purifies himself.

The Quran mentions crucifixion even before Moses ( عليه السلام), at the time of Joseph ( عليه السلام) . The interpretation of the dream of one of his companions in prison was that he would be crucified: يا صاحبي السجن أما أحدكما فيسقي ربه خمرا وأما الآخر فيصلب فتأكل الطير من رأسه قضي الأمر الذي فيه تستفتيان O two companions of prison, as for one of you, he ...

Doubtful. The Qur'an is not a book of history. Even if one were to accept that every word in it is literally and completely accurate, all this ayah "proves" is that Pharaoh once threatened his people with this. It doesn't indicate that this was a common punishment, or even that it was ever actually accomplished. There's also the question of whether ...

The hint of @Ahmed helped: Narrated Sa'id bin Jubair: A Jew from Hira asked me which one of the two periods Musa (i.e. Prophet Moses) completed. I said, "I don't know, (but wait) till I see the most learned 'Arab and inquire him about it." So, I went to Ibn 'Abbas and asked him. He replied, "Moses completed the longer and better period." ...

None of the answers given so far seems satisfactory to me. As none of the answers shows a date of compilation of the copy presented as the original.

At the time of abu Bakr or even the Sahabah none of the 7 qira'at was established yet. Further the restrictions on the moshaf of 'Uthman or al-Moshaf al-Imam was not yet ordered. So reciting qur'an using synonyms and explanations was still allowed. All of these 7 and more are based on the qira'at of multiple Sahabah . The earliest of these qira'at were ...

The time at which Ghazwa Dhul-Khalasa took place is not known with precision. Jarir bin 'Abdullah al-Bajali (the narrator of the hadith) was among those sahaba who accepted Islam near the end of the ministry of the Prophet ﷺ, as he was from Yemen and came to visit the Prophet ﷺ with the delegations. There are different reports on exactly when he accepted ...

The slavery that was practiced according to the Islamic laws is not, in its very nature, evil. That would be saying 1) that the Prophet (SAW) and the companions participated in an evil and 2) Allah left something evil in His religion. Both of these are false and unacceptable statements. The religion of Islam was completed in the lifetime of the Prophet (SAW)....

Israel is the given name of the forefather of the people of Israel. It is the name of the people, not of the region. The name of the land in the time of Mose was Canaan, the south was called Moab. It seems that these names were also linked to the people living there. Land and people have different names in Jewish and Greek sources.

The Bani Israel, or simply Children of Israel, are called by this name because Israel was another name for Prophet Yaqub, and from his 12 children came the 12 tribes that constituted "The Children of Israel". After Yusuf became the minister of Egypt, his whole family migrated there, hence, the origin of Bani Israel starts from Egypt. The people who ...

I asked this question in judaism.SE, and received an answer as can be seen in the link. To best of my understanding, according to the Jewish tradition, Abraham compiled some books/scriptures during his lifetime. I believe these scriptures could be what the Quran is referring to. However, they are now lost, so we don't know the exact contents of them.

Your question is an interesting one and, I think, it is quite logical. I do not agree with an answer given by a friend who outrightly rejected the authenticity of the narration (of course, it is should not be thought of as a hadees). The incident is quoted by Tabari (History of al-Tabari, v4, p191, Printed by Dar al-Maarif - Cairo). Looking at the Old ...
